YREP: Continuation and Update

Talking with a Brother on the Master Mason forum and he was discussing the Chancellor Robert R Livingston Masonic Library of the Grand Lodge of New York and a course they have.  This is the reading course geared towards the York Rite:
12. The Tabernacle Near the Ruins, the Royal Arch Course: 
  • Royal Arch, Capstone of Freemasonry by Ray Vaughn Denslow 
  • Lessons in Capitular Masonry by Charles C. Hunt 
  • Thomas Smith Webb, Freemason, Musician, Entrepreneur by Herbert R. Leyland 
  • Light from the Sanctuary by Charles Albert Snodgrass 
  • The Royal Arch, its Hidden Meaning by George Harold Steinmetz 
13. The Secret Vault Under the Tabernacle, the Cryptic Mason Course:  
  • An Encyclopedia of Cryptic Masonry by Ray Vaughn Denslow  
  • One Hundred Years, 1823-1923, of the Grand Council of Royal and Select Masters, State of New York compiled by Herbert W. Greenlan  
  • A History of the Cryptic Rite vol. 1 by Eugene E. Hinman  
  • A Short Story About Cryptic Masonry by A. Thompson Phillips 
14. The Commandery, the Knights Templar course:  
  • History of the Knights Templar by Charles G. Addison 
  • The Temple and the Lodge by Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh 
  • The Crusades by Michael Paine 
  • The Templars by Piers Paul Read 
  • Dungeon, Fire, Sword by John J. Robinson
I am still trying to figure out how to implement the system and what books to use, this seems like a good set of books to start from. I'll keep you updated.
